's a war zone, and then israel i have an exception for, under my proposal, because of the heightened risk of conflict. should be weakened financially because we cut them off, or if cutting them off would appear to be a move to distance ourself and might embolden israel's foes, and my amendment would fully fund the proposal of chairman hall rogers. >> mr. burgess. >> thank you for the recognition, i want to thank all of you for your work on the eliminating offset amendments. there was a 1% across the board offset that turned out to be $9 billion when, in 2005-2006, and there is a crs report delineates that. i think there's precedence for looking at this. one question i would have for you is, how will this funding be affected by the sequester? is there already an across the board cut that comes through the sequester and is your cut in addition to the sequester or is this funding carved out and protected? >> my understanding, doctor, is that both the underlying bill and my amendment would be on top of the sequester. >> so they're protected from the cuts or the sequester cuts -- >> the the $1
legitimate concerns about what hagel's positions were with respect to iran and israel. then again, i thought about what was behind the act? it" the end it was a democratic president appointing a cabinet member. it didn't shock me that schumer was on board. i was surprised by the speed. but it looks like it's shaping up for a relatively more comfortable confirmation battle for chuck hagel. >> michael, what i think it's not abouted a tud. i don't know where cardin is going to go. i don't know where a lot of people from big states, jewish communities are more sensitive to the language he's used in the past, but it seems to me that what will beat him now is evidence. not argument. it comes out that he's used bad language, ethnic language, if he said things or just showed an attitude publicly in a way that can be verified, he's still got problems if that happens. >> sure, anything can happen. hagel talks expansively. he's a little like biden. to his credit and i think something obama likes about him, he's not a totally programmed -- >> biden had a lot to do with pushing this, didn't he? >> i thin
addressed claims that he's anti- israel, among other things. california democrat barbara boxer also issued a statement of support. the backing of two prominent jewish senators is expected to help hagel ease concerns among other, pro-israel lawmakers. a major debt rating agency warned today the u.s. could lose its top credit status if there's a delay in raising the debt ceiling. the federal government is expected to exceed its borrowing limit by march, unless congress acts. if fitch does downgrade u.s. debt, it would join standard and poor's, which took that action in 2011 during the last debt ceiling debate. the u.s. house moved to pass a hurricane sandy relief bill this evening. $17 billion would go for immediate recovery in the affected northeastern states. another $33 billion is for long- term spending. some republicans argued that much of the money isn't for emergency relief at all. california's tom mcclintock called for stripping that funding out. >> according to the congressional budget office, more than 90% of this money won't even be spent this year. that's not emergency relief. $1
iran, his position on israel, and chuck schumer today coming out and saying that he feels confident that hagel is in line with where the president stands on these things, that he is willing to act unilaterally when it comes to iran and not take any options off the table, and that his position has changed because he understands that israel is now in really a defense position and is in a different place than when he made some of the those comments a few years ago. that will be the key moving forward, and, again, a lot of people looking to see what chuck schumer had to say before making the decision that, of course, barbara boxer also coming out and saying that she is going to support chuck hagel for this position. andrea. >> ruth, that clearly smooths the way because it was schumer's ambivalence and the ambivalence of other democrats, key democrats, even -- so if he weren't going to support chuck hagel, that would be a huge obstacle? >> that would have been a huge obstacle, but the cavalry was always coming, i think, i think senator schumer had concerns. i think probably excuse my cyn
that hagel has held with respect to iran and israel, would he, in fact, support the fullest protection of israel if there were any kind of a threat from iran that materialized? also, issues related to gay americans and would there be an issue with that, especially given the fact he's serving a democratic president? so they spent the time, they talked it out and very important indication that schumer will encourage his colleagues in the senate to go along and support the hague el nomination, as well. one of the sort of dances that's going to happen here is typically a former senator or senator put up for nominee in this way is confirmed pretty easily among friends in the senate who know them and have a personal history so to have resistance to chuck hagel has been one of the more unusual circumstances. you see the contrast talking about john kerry for sost. you have people in both parties coming forward supportive for his nomination. schumer and boxer, two of the prominent jewish american senators saying they feel confident that hagel will protect israel, they think that's important ste
on some of these controversial issues and comments that he brought up in the past, on iran, on israel, and he specifically says that hagel now understands the fact that israel is in a more endangered spot than it was, essentially acknowledging the administration's position which is that iran has gotten closer to acquiring nuclear weapons, so hagel basically telling schumer he would support unilateral action on iran, would not take any option off the table as it pertains to iran around understands some of his comments in the past about israel were in his words not appropriate, not well-stated. so i think a lot of people are going to be swayed by this decision that schumer has made and don't forget, martin, it's not just chuck schumer, it's also barbara boxer who has come out this week and said that she would support hagel's nomination for secretary of defense. so these key democrats coming out and saying they are, in fact, planning to back hagel. i think that is allowing the white house to breathe to some extent a sigh of relief, although administration officials say they always believ
confirming moments ago, donald trump has taken the unusual move of stepping into the israel politics and endorsing the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. apparently asked to endorse him by an israeli agency. and trump released an endorsement video. take a look. >> my name is donald trump and i'm a big fan of israel. and frankly, a strong prime minister is a strong israel. and you truly have a great prime minister in benjamin netanyahu, there's nobody like him. he's a winner. he's highly respected. he's highly thought of by all. and people really do have great, great respect for what's happened in israel. so, vote for benjamin, terrific guy, terrific leader, great for israel. >> megyn: i love trump because he divides everybody into winners and losers. remember when he had the feud with rosie, rosie is a loser, been a loser for a long time. as if you could quantify it. not loser, loser. anyway, he says netanyahu is a winner and he'd like to see him continue winning and israel's election takes place january 22nd and prime minister netanyahu is expected to be reelected. next, a l

just by coincidence, i was in israel when the new town shooting took place, and the next morning hours touring the facility where they train security guards for their schools. they put those guards in after that school shooting in the 1970 and worked. in this country after columbine president clinton got funding for the cops in school programs which pays for many of those two. : thousand police. in other localities, private firms, and school boards volunteers provide security. why was it a smart idea when the israelis did it and a reasonable idea when bill clinton endorsed it and the insane idea when we suggested it? the fact is that america's parents want their kids protected, and there are two real basic problems here. what is the breakdown of our mental health system. almost all of these shooters are people he should not be allowed to possess any firearm. we have been urging for years the people who have been adjudicated to be potentially dangerous people on the list of prohibited purchasers. lou: let me interrupt you because what you're suggesting there is then that the nra will su

in a democratic egypt. since taking office, he has reaffirmed the commitment to the peace treaty with israel in both word and deed, and has proven willing to work with us toward shared objectives, including a ceasefire during the crisis in gaza last year. these commitments are essential for our relations with egypt as well as stability in the region. we will always speak out against language that espouses religious hatred or encourages the use of violence and have raised our concerns over these remarks with the government of egypt. >> does the white house believe that israelis contrasting to uphold is in of the bargain? >> we strongly condemn the comments and believe that he should make clear that he respects people of all faiths and this type of rhetoric is unacceptable. three -- we work within toward objectives. he has demonstrated in word and deed is a commitment to the peace treaty with israel which is significant and that obviously worked with us to resolve or to achieve a peace settlement in -- a cease-fire, rather, in the does the conflict last year, so this is about action, indeed, a
have. those that have concerns. on his position on israel, on his position in the past on iran specifically opposing sanctions. and for some unfortunate remarks that he made with regard to the jewish lobby and also gay americans. on all of those, a pretty lengthy statement that senator schumer released, and he said that he went through in this 90 minute discussion with senator hagel and he feels that he has endorsed or at least supports now the president's position on iran and israel for example and he made apologies for comments he made on the jewish lobby and gays. and so this is very significant because senator schumer, with him he will probably bring some other members. but also if it went the other way, carol, if senator schumer, the number three democrat, were to say i'm not going to support him, it would effectively be over for chuck hagel. it was kind of hard to see that happening based on the relationship schumer has with the white house. he'll walk the president down to put his hand on the bible and take the second oath. but still this is a signature move that he's ma
